Getting Started

Deadline Funnel can help boost your sales for your marketing campaigns in Podia! 😎

Each subscriber in your sequence will be automatically assigned their own custom deadline - whether you're doing a webinar… an email sequence… an automated launch… or really ANY type of campaign.

If you're not using a deadline you're leaving money on the table!

Here's a quick guide on how to get started with Deadline Funnel + Podia, so you can build your evergreen funnel.

1. Create your Deadline Funnel campaign

First things first - you will need to create a campaign in Deadline Funnel before you can set up the integration with Podia.

When creating your campaign, we recommend selecting the blueprints option and then choose the "Email Sequence + Special Offer" blueprint:

Then you'll set the deadline length and add your first page(s). Don't worry too much about those two items - you can come back later and change those at any time.

Once you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, you will be taken to the Quick Start Guide, where you can verify that the correct trigger has been selected:

Now you can follow the steps below to integrate with Podia.

2. Integrating Deadline Funnel with your Podia emails

After you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, you'll need to set up the integration between Deadline Funnel, Zapier, and Podia.

This integration determines where you start each subscriber's Deadline Funnel tracking as they are going through your automation. This a key step when you're using the deadline in your Podia emails, as it's what allows us to track each subscriber's email address, which in turn allows us to keep their deadline synced up with your email sequence.

Note: Our article uses Kajabi as an example and it covers how you can trigger the deadline based on when a new subscriber is added to a list in Kajabi, but with Podia you can choose between 'New Email List Subscription' or 'New Membership Subscription'.

3. Add Deadline Funnel email links to your automation

The second critical part for Deadline Funnel tracking is to add Deadline Funnel email links to the emails in your automation, wherever you're linking to a page that has a Deadline Funnel timer or redirect on it.

That would normally be your special offer page, which normally would get redirected to a different page after the deadline expires.

Here's our guide on adding the Deadline Funnel email links to your emails.

Please note that you cannot integrate Deadline Funnel + Podia correctly unless you add the Deadline Funnel links to your emails!

Email timers:

At this stage, Podia does not support adding countdown timers to their emails.

We'll continue to monitor this and will make sure to let our Podia clients know once they do start supporting it.

Automated webinars

If you're setting up an evergreen webinar using Kajabi, Deadline Funnel, and Easywebinar, we have a helpful guide on how to do that using Zapier here.

We don't currently have guides for other webinar platforms, but you can generally follow the same steps if you're integrating with another webinar platform. And please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
